|Six Correction Officers Injured By Inmates at Two Different Jails on Same Day|
The head of the corrections officers' union called for the city Department of Corrections commissioner's resignation after officers at two different jails were attacked by inmates on Tuesday.
An inmate punched a corrections officer in the face and kicked him while he was closing a gate at the Brooklyn Detention Complex Tuesday afternoon, the DOC said.
In a separate incident at the George R. Vierno Center on Rikers Island, an inmate punched an officer in the face and hurt four other officers who tried to intervene after the jail discovered he had contraband, according to the DOC.
